Guyana, the small, unknown country of South America, is the world of giant otters, jaguars and the majestic harpy, as well as a variety of other impressive animal species.

Most of Guyana is covered by seemingly endless rainforest, one of the last contiguous jungles on earth. Between the canopy and the forest floor there is a huge diversity of species.

While the jaguar searches for its prey in the undergrowth, the spider monkeys wander long distances from one fruit-bearing tree to the next. They are constantly on guard against the harpy. Black caimans nest on the banks of the rivers, sharing their habitat with the giant otters.

In Guyana's green heart lies one of the country's oldest protected areas. The mission of the rangers is to track down illegal gold miners and protect the forest from waste of natural resources.
